Just over a year ago, I wrote a post about my first day as a full time musician (http://www.krisorlowski.com/blog/2015/2/18/my-first-day-as-a-full-time-musician). It felt like a badge of honor taking the leap. A leap it was.
When I asked career musicians about advice, the statement I heard the most was “before throwing in the towel or giving in to seasonal tendencies around quitting, commit to being just a musician for a full year”.
So here I am a year later, thinking about where I've spent my time, what I've achieved, and I thought it was worth sharing. Instead of a written recap, I thought I would share a more visual, by the numbers, look at how the year went.
